Post-surgery has forced to re-evaluate sex for me. I've had to find new ways of pleasure, allow time for healing to happen, find acceptance with my partner and within myself. Things that worked well before are no longer the same and I have to accept that this is an opportunity to explore and discover the limits of body. I am still only 9 months since my surgery and it has been a uplifting and simultaneously heart breaking process.
As someone who has always had dysphoria and trauma around sex this is a huge challenge for me and one I am continually trying to navigate through.
